Opel has recently announced its plans to bring the new Cascada to the 2013 Geneva Motor Show next month.

After it was officially unveiled a few months ago, the newest model signed by Opel, the Cascada, is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the German based automaker announcing its plans to introduce it to the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. The Opel Cascada is riding on a combination between the platforms of the Insignia and Astra and it’s 4,697 mm long and 1,840 mm wide.

Opel says that the Cascada’s engine lineup includes the 1.6 liter turbocharged petrol MGE, producing 168 BHP and 280 Nm of torque, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, a 1.4 liter petrol generating 138 BHP an a larger 2.0 liter diesel, with 163 BHP. The Opel / Vauxhall Cascada takes its name from the Spanish word for waterfall. The canvas roof of the model can be opened in 17 seconds at speeds up to 30 mph by pressing the switch in the cabin or the button on the key fob.
